Brainstorm’s StikBot nominated for Toy of the Year award

Published on: 20th November 2015

StikBot, one of Brainstorm’s big new releases for January, has been nominated for the US Toy of the Year Award.

StikBot-480StikBot studio is the nominated line in the E-connected Toy of the Year category.

The line includes two StikBots and a tripod to quickly and securely set up a smartphone for filming StikBots. It also includes exclusive orange and clear coloured StikBots only available in this pack.

StikBots are collectible pocket-money characters. With eight colours to collect, each figure will stick to almost any flat surface and each other.

At their basic level, StikBots are just fun fidget-toys that young kids will want to collect and play with, but the free app that enables kids to easily create stop frame animations extends the age group to which this toy will appeal.

Brainstorm also plans to TV advertise, kicking off with a heavy weight campaign over the February half-term.
